DC Fifty-Too/Marvel What If?

I’ve got a piece up today at the DC Fifty-Too blog! ¬†You should go look at it there, because it’s in FULL COLOR. I’ll put the color one up here eventually, but all you can see right now is the black and white linework. Over there you can see it in FULL COLOR.

This is the first piece I’ve finished entirely in MangaStudio, at least for the linework. I did the color in PhotoShop. I really like the way that program works.

FULL COLOR.

  1. How’s Manga Studio doing for you?

    I tried Manga Studio recently but I didn’t get it. The interface was too cryptic to me. I’ve switched from Photoshop to PaintTool SAI as my main drawing/painting program. Have you tried SAI? It’s got a 30-day free trial.

    I haven’t heard of that one, I’ll check it out.

    I had the same experience with MangaStudio as you when I first downloaded a demo a year or two ago. I just couldn’t figure it out. I heard Dave Gibbons was using it, so I watched a 2-hour webinar he did on YouTube and went ahead and bought a full version. I’m still learning, but the tools are amazing.

    I just discovered the perspective ruler and it blew my mind.

    D’oh, it looks like Paint Tool SAI is only on Windows. I’m on a Mac.

    Ah yes, it’s Windows only. Its brushes engine is way too cool, some really smooth strokes. If you ever run Windows on your Mac using Parallels or something, try it. I love it dearly.

    I’ll check out that video. Which version of Manga Studio are you using? I downloaded the trial of Debut and hated the fact I had to make a phone call to end my trial period (I don’t live in the States). I hope it still works.
